Twisted metal fans of old will find that this game is like a breath of fresh air. Try out the free demo in the Playstation store for a good sampling of content.

The good:
Missions vary quite a bit (not just race and gladiator like the demo) and unlockables through special secondary objectives add replay value.

Limited but satisfying customization.

FAST gameplay. The controls are twitchy but TM veterans will adjust quickly.

Very pretty on 1080p

The Bad:

Extremely weak story. Seems like an afterthought.

Not much variety in weapon configurations

Steep learning curve as early missions are tough and equipment is limited.

When I first started this game, I was severely disappointed. However, what I think added to my disappointment was first the difficulty of this title (yes, it IS difficult), and second, the fact that you start with a mediocre vehicle with poor handling that I interpreted as poor controls.

This game, however, does become quite addictive and completing missions gives a great sense of accomplishment. I soon found myself aching to play more and more, and I often repeated missions even though all objectives were complete, just to see if I could do better than the last time. And as you get better cars, the controls improve with them.

The positives: The speed in this game is exhilarating. At times, I was amazed I could make it through the chaos, debris, and complex courses at the high rate of speed. The destruction is fun, but wears thin after a while. There is a good variety of objectives, and a good number of secondary objectives are often accomplished just by completing the primary ones. Some of the weapons are fun, but you'll often find that you'll consistently go back to the same ones time and time again.

The bad: This game is not without bugs. It froze my system a few times, and in one mission, the AI went completely dead. The AI is ok, but cheats heavily in the game, falsely catching up to you if you try to get too far ahead in a race or in an arena battle. The weapons could have been a little more unique, since most are the standard fare of machine guns, missiles, etc. I'd love to see an EMP, or a grappling hook or some other more interesting weapon. And the final bad is the ending. Out of all the missions, the final one was the easiest of all, having completed it on my first attempt.

Conclusion: I think this is a great rent. It's not something that has much replay value (I couldn't find any opponents online, BTW). It's fun, and very addictive. I'm glad I rented it and stayed with it past the early missions when it really becomes fun.

This game is just very fun to play. it' s not to easy not to hard. The on line play was a bit disappointing because there are not a whole lot of people on there but this game is worth a rent but not a buy. Graphics are great the cars look awesome.
